Aleksandar Kolarov: Expected Scotland to hit a lot of long balls in World Cup qualifier
Aleksandar Kolarov has branded Scotland a 'long-ball' side and feels Serbia have little to fear from them in 2014 World Cup qualifying.
The two nations played out a goalless draw at Hampden Park on Saturday as they took their first steps on the road to Brazil.
Scotland had the better of the chances in a keenly-fought contest, but both sides could have snatched all three points.
Manchester City full-back Kolarov believes Serbia were always comfortable and claims the Scotland result, coupled with a 0-0 draw against the Republic of Ireland in August, has them well prepared for a home date with Wales on Tuesday.
He said: "I think we are a better team than Scotland.
"They played at home but I think we are a better team than them. And we are going to try to win against Wales.
"I think all the squads from the island play in the same way, with the long ball.
"We had this game and the last friendly game against Ireland, so we are used to playing against a team like this."
Kolarov says he was not surprised in any way by Scotland's approach.
"We know how they play, with long balls. They are good on the second balls and from set-pieces," he said.
"We made some mistakes and they could have scored but nil-nil in the end was okay for both sides."
